Thursday: Quick and Easy
Sardine-caper toast with carrot-mustard seed salad.
We were pretty tired this evening, so we just threw together two quick and easy dishes. For the salad, grated carrots were doused in mustard seeds that had been popped in oil. In a classic combination, canned sardines were mashed with a little lemon juice and chopped capers (see here for an example).
We usually use nonpareil capers (the little kind), but today we happened to have the larger, nicer caper berries in the fridge:
